Hellenism
(Greek word for "Greekish")

The civilisation that spread from Greece through much of the ancient world from 333 (Alexander the Great) to 63 (dominance of Rome) BCE. As a result, many elements of Greek culture (names, language, philosophy, athletics, architecture, etc.) penetrated the Near East.
